Sliding doors blend indoor and outdoor living

Homeowners can blend indoor and outdoor living without compromising safety.

A wall of glass with sliding doors creates drama and comfort in a room. The new Mira Premium Impact Series Bi-Parting door from Ply Gem Windows delivers beauty as well as impact resistance.

At the 2015 International Builder's Show, Mark Montgomery, senior vice president-sales and marketing, reviews some of the new products from Ply Gem, including the Bi-Parting door.

Montgomery said the door is available in sizes up to 12 feet wide, which provides up to six feet of horizontal space when open, the cascading bi-parting patio doors simulate the look of a glass wall with added storm protection.

The doors come equipped with impact-rated glass, based on the same technology found in automotive safety glass, to help prevent windblown debris from breaking through a home’s seal with no action required by the homeowner.

Offered in 46 exterior colors, and a variety of standard and custom sizes, the four-panel door can be configured to meet builder specifications and match any exterior design.
